During today's, February 22, game against Louisville, Sean Kilpatrick became the second 2,000 point scorer in the history of Cincinnati basketball. The list reads as followed:
1) Oscar Robertson
2) Sean Kilpatrick.
There have been a lot of great scorers at Cincinnati. Durden, Fortson, Logan, Vaughn, Kenyon at the end of his career, but none of them were as consistent for as long as Sean Kilpatrick. I'm not one to speculate about putting numbers in the rafters, but 2K points is a pretty good reason. Sean Kilpatrick will definitely be a Cincinnati hall of famer. That's a slam dunk, no doubt about it.
Major congratulations to Sean Kilpatrick. The only major mountain he last left to climb comes in March.
BEST OF MAXIM
CINCINNATI -- University of Cincinnati guard Sean Kilpatrick joined the legendary Oscar Robertson Saturday as the only Cincinnati players to score 2,000 career points.
Kilpatrick reached the milestone with 15:16 left in Saturday's game vs. Louisville on a driving layup. He was also fouled but missed the ensuing free throw.
He scored on the next possession, too.
CINCINNATI -- The book on the Cincinnati Bearcats is very much open. The general plot line -- very dependent on Sean Kilpatrick, offensively-challenged everywhere else -- is simple. The defense seems aggressive and nasty enough to carry a team that entered Saturday's game vs. Louisville with 24 wins in 27 games and ranked No. 9 in the country.
That's all fair and accurate...
The University of Cincinnati Bearcats have no doubt that Louisville is coming to town this weekend looking for revenge after losing to the Bearcats, 69-66, in Louisville on Jan. 30.
“But we’re going to be ready to play them as well,” said UC guard Sean Kilpatrick.

Where should we start? Rick Pitino’s team played the best defensive of the season in the first half against Cincinnati, but failed to make the most of it, leading by only three points at half time.

The Bearcats fell to Louisville 58-57 when Russ Smith hit a rainbow jumper with 2 seconds remaining. Smith assisted on two baskets then hit the game winner on Louisville's last 3 possessions. Just a gut punch ending on a very intense, very hardly contested contest.
Can't understate how huge Sean Kilpatrick was in this one...
